i'm nikki burdine in montgomery county where parents sasha and danielle meitiv are in hot water this morning accused of child neglect. it started yesterday when the parents dropped off their kids at a park to play by themselves unattended. this is something they do all the time. it's called free-range parenting but someone called police to check on those children. those kids were picked up and brought here to child protective services. the problem is no one called those parents to let them know their kids were okay so it was several hours before those kids were finally reunited with their parents. those children are no longer allowed to be free-range parented because those parents had to sign a contract with child protective services till police can follow up. a new day, another presidential announcement expected tonight. florida senator marco rubio has scheduled an event at miami's freedom tower. he's expected to announce he's seeking the 2016 republican

sunshine by this afternoon, 75 degrees. breezy at times. rain arrives tomorrow mainly during the midday carrying on through your evening rush. gets out of here for wednesday. the nats are home by the weekend into the weekend. the only day we could probably see a little rain is on friday for those games. i think the thing of the day is kind of unusual volume we're seeing today. when i was in our little traffic chat a moment ago, no issues on 395, 295. mainly in the maryland side once you start getting toward the district we're starting to see volume there. 50 free and clear, that disabled vehicle has been moved off the road. want to give you a live look right now at connecticut avenue. this is the inner and outer loop. traffic is moving there but if you can add additional time to your drive time, i would suggest you do because we're seeing volume we don't normally see. cbs this morning is next with a look at the growing list of presidential candidates. >> omar villafranca is live from augusta with more on the
